hpv and herpes are completely different viruses. being infected with one, doesn't cause a false positive for the other. depending on what type of hpv you have, depends if it's a cervical cancer risk or not. should you disclose to your bf? of course! wouldn't you be upset if he didn't disclose to you? also has he been tested for hs...

odds are that none of this has been due to herpes. Really unfortunately so many screw ups with your original testing you tried to have done. recurrences of herpes tend to be single lesions. your multiple lesions with these recurrences is a good sign that this is something non-herpes going on. is it worth a blood test from this recent encounter? no it is...

hsv1 genitally becoming more common. still not near as common as hsv1 orally is but it's the cause of 70% of all newly acquired genital herpes infections under the age of 30. is it really a big deal? well no, not really. Thankfully when it comes to hsv1 genitally, it tends not to reoccur very often and doesn't shed very often. If a partner has ...

just wanted to add, the dietary changes you mentioned, are helpful for many skin infections in general. doesn't mean that it's helping any herpes symptoms. make sense? when you avoid sugar and eat a high lysine diet, it is helpful for skin issues for many people. could you both be sharing a common skin infection that is causing something like a ...

these could be many things. have you ever had a type specific herpes igg blood test done? best thing to do is next time they appear, be seen within 48 hours for a lesion culture and exam. odds are these aren't herpes but following up on it all can help you figure out what is causing them. grace

if you've had a fungal infection this long, it's not going to go away on its own. you killed off your "good" protective flora with the antibiotics and it allowed for over growth of not so good things. never underestimate but a whopping case of fungus can cause symptom wise!!! You've seen the commercials for us gals - burning and i...

usually it's a pcr test which isn't helpful for herpes blood testing outside of research in controlled circumstances in adults.

you have to wait the full 16 weeks for the WB. No sense in wasting money testing early. whether or not you have flu like symptoms has a lot to do with your prior hsv1 status which for you at this point in unfortunately unknown thanks to your doctor's wrongful attitude about hsv1.

we recommend the herpes igm not be done for a reason - it's an inaccurate test in adults outside of controlled research studies. I'm going with herpes obsessive!! time to realize it's a non-herpes cause.

this sounds like perhaps you've developed a fungal infection from being on antibiotics. see your provider for a proper exam to confirm. grace
